Crystal Springs Elementary School

The Weekly Wrap by Principal Nielsen- September 4th

Dear Crystal Springs Families,


Thank you for a wonderful first week! We appreciate the support of each and every family. We have had close to 100% attendance and participation this week. That is truly amazing! We could not have done it without all of you! The teachers were so happy to see your child and are enjoying the one-on-one conferences. If you have not signed up yet, please do so with your child's teacher as soon as possible!


Great information if you are having any issues logging in to Clever or Schoology:

Please encourage your child to wear Crystal Springs gear or something blue each Friday for CS Spirit Day!


Reminder: No school on Monday, September 7th! We can't wait to see your child/ children on Tuesday!


Sincerely,

Anne Nielsen- Principal
